Birth animation

There is a great birth animation that is just soooo cool!

Here is the link.

Some things that it shows:
  • A great many things that your care provider checks for during vaginal exams:
  • decent (how far baby is in the pelvis, measured in -3 through +3)
  • dilation (how open the cervix is, measured in centimeters)
  • The cardinal movements of baby
What I didn't like that it shows:
  • A momma laboring in the lithotomy position
  • It doesn't adequately represent effacement (thinning of the cervix)
But, you have to admit, it is pretty cool.
